There are a few different brands of Conservatives. Religious conservatives have faith and therefore always believe in a better tomorrow. As far as run if the mill conservatives go Im sure they think things are good as is.
There aren't a few brands of liberals? I'm pretty sure there are a few economic liberals that own guns ....

Liberals tend to choose to become "offended" to easily. How can you be happy if you are perpetually a victim?

Conservatives are much more likely to be well off, or at least living in comfort. There are plenty of happy liberals, but those living in poverty are going to be less happy and bring the numbers down (and people living in poverty tend to lean liberal).

The conservatives that post on forums never seem happy, most have extreme anger issues.

Ya know, Bill Gates is liberal. I don't see any conservatives trying to bring clean water to Africa or eradicate disease in their spare time.

Liberal billionaires are probably more happy than the average liberal.

Liberals are sad, lonely, and miserly because they don't have any meaningful connections outside of the lunatic fringe 'blame/hate America' Occupy crowd. They are perpetually outraged about something and if there's nothing to be outraged about they'll invent it. They're big on poking fun at the mainstream but if you poke back they throw a hissy fit and cry how they're a victim. Humor isn't their strong suit.

Their goal is to make everybody as miserable and unhappy as they are, only then will we all be truly equal in their eyes.

And yet here are a bunch of Conservatives who are doing nothing but whining and complaining.
I bet if you look at all the threads here in the political section of C-D, 95% are made by conservatives whining and complaining about something.

You would be surprised how many Faith Based Organizations (which are mostly conservatives) are out there helping Africa and all over the World.

Being a conservative has made me very happy.....It taught me to work for what I want instead of expecting a handout. The harder you work the luckier and richer you get. Retirement is bliss with everything paid in full plus investments and money in the bank......Why would anyone want to be a Liberal, getting handouts that you didn't work for would never be enough to finance a comfortable care free retirement.
